Hi, all. I have just updated to the kernel 2.6.28-15 and my RTL8111/8168B ethernet card isn't recognised. Here is the relevant output from lshw:
In the past the r8169 driver took control but didn't work. I always had to replace it with the r8168 driver from the official Realtek website. However, in the previous kernel (2.6.28-14) even the r8168 didn't work and I had high hopes for this kernel update. But they seem to have removed any suitable drivers from the kernel altogether. Anybody with the same card/same problem or any ideas? Should I just try the r8168 again?
lshw -C network
